For the past two years, KATRIN FEIST the artist, has been spending many hours exploring her hometown on foot. Previously her paths were drawn to alpine and mountainous landscapes. But now the intensity of Katrin Feist's focus has shifted towards Dresden and its immediate surroundings. A fascination arose with the linear graphical mesh of electric power and tram wires, the railway lines and roads and associated symbolic and scenic effect of traffic signs, billboards and graffiti. This visual maze pervades, connects and dissipates our city and the sky. The network often disturbs the harmonious aesthetic of a photographer’s view of buildings and scenes but also describes simultaneously a unique and perfect aesthetic in itself. The paintings of KATRIN FEIST are showing a completely different perspective on the renowned DRESDEN, a different kind of beauty and poetry, a new perception of town.
